Posted Fri Sep 12, 2008 at 08:00 AM PDT by Peter Bracke

Anchor Bay has announced a mid-November debut for 'Heathers,' which will hit Blu-ray in standard and limited edition versions.

Widely considered to be among the best teen films of the past few decades, the 1988 cult classic has received numerous DVD releases over the years. Finally due to make its next-gen debut on November 18, Anchor Bay will issue the Winona Ryder-Christian Slater black comedy on Blu-ray in standard and limited "Locker Set" editions.

Tech specs for the standard edition include remastered 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround audio.

Including the same stand-alone Blu-ray as the standard release, the "Limited Edition Locker Set' will also contain a standard DVD edition of the film, and come housed in a deluxe package with additional collectibles (to be announced).

Anchor Bay has not yet issued supplemental details for either Blu-ray edition, but full details are expected soon. We'll keep you posted.

Suggested retail price for the standard Blu-ray has been set at $29.98, and $89.97 for the 'Limited Edition Locker Set.'
